9:05am
maryland at 9:00. today on our wmar facebook fan page, we ask the question, is the government doing enough to help people get back to work? >> anthony write: it took eight years to break it, it's going to take more than two to fix it. it appears the economy is slowly starting to improve. >> we want to know what you think. head to the wmar facebook fan page. we'll share comments throughout today's show. good morning, everyone. happy labor day to you. we started out on friday, we had earl, after that, everything just went uphill from there. lots of sunshine over the weekend. on this labor day, we're doing more of the same. yesterday, check out the 78 we got into baltimore. oh yes, we'll take that.
9:06am
allatoona around 70 degrees. 71 pittsburgh. 76 charleston. 79 roanoke. it just gets better. if you like warmer temperatures, it'll be warmer today. i'm forecasting around 83 degrees. right now, we're right around 69 degrees into baltimore. little cooler into allatoona and pittsburgh coming at 57 and also 58 degrees. now we're looking at satellite and radar. we see showers and thunderstorms back off towards the north and west. won't inch down into our area, we have high pressure that will block out all that activity. maybe you'll be doing traveling for today or maybe tomorrow and we do have some stuff brewing out here into the gulf of mexico. it is tropical storm hermine. you know what? it's not going to affect us. we have good news. we had earl, we'll be done with it for a while. the last time i showed this, winds were sustained about 40 miles an hour. this is getting its act together, trying to strengthen a bit. intensify if you will. it is moving to the north at about 9 miles an hour.
9:07am
picked up forward speed as well. going to put this into motion, the forecasted path for this, to take a northwesterly jog. what's going to happen, the center of this could make landfall, i'd say maybe tomorrow morning, right around the northeastern part of mexico. the very southern tip of texas. it will dump a lot of rainfall. it makes landfall and like storms do, tropical storms, once they come in contact with land, they weaken and it'll just move off to the north. the biggest problem with this will be flooding. as we check out our forecast once again, we'll definitely stay dry. as we see a front moving through. putting more cloud cover to the area into wednesday. moving through, dropping temperatures down, back to the 81, 80 degree mark on thursday and friday. for today, that temperature around 83. mostly sunny and nice.
9:08am

9:10am
9:11am
starting a family, no doubt about it, is very exciting, but it doesn't come easy for everyone. this week we'll look at the challenges some couples face when trying to have children and the options out there for them. abc2 news linda sow has a story of a local couple that went through immense heart ache before welcoming their bundles of joy, take a look. [laughter] >> reporter: the sweet giggles, the crystal blue eyes and pudgy little fingers. life couldn't be better for this family, when their twins made their big debut 16 months ago, everything changed. >> it's changed for the better. we have somebody to play with
9:12am
now. [laughter] >> it was a happy, happy, happy moment. >> reporter: reaching that moment was a long and hard journey. joanne had fertility issues and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian disease. a condition that makes it difficult to get pregnant. after consulting with her doctor at the fertility center, joanne went through invitro fertilization. >> i got pregnant immediately with twin girls. >> reporter: there were complications. joanne went into preterm labor, the twins didn't make it. >> they were alive for an hour each after they were born. that was hard. >> reporter: joanne finally gave birth to a healthy boy and girl. >> we waited almost ten years for this, finally we have it. >> reporter: now their days are filled with double the fun, double the trouble and twice as
9:13am
much to be thankful for. in annapolis, linda sow, abc2 news. >> great family, all right. amanda brannon was 8 years old when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. four years later' the age of 12 amanda lost her mom. she watched her mom fight the disease and fight for money to come up with a cure. amanda joins us right now. your mom raised $100,000 and you, by the time you reach 18, you're six years away from it right now, you want to raise $50,000. >> yes. >> so far how much have you raised? >> $9,000 last year and this year so far, $4,000. >> unbelievable. you do it every day don't you? >> yes. >> she has swim fest coming up on sunday. that's why we wanted to come in and promote the fact. swim fest will be like what? >> my goal is to have over 100 swimmers come out and swim.

9:15am
my age. i think they should follow, they should look up to me and to my mom and to follow in everyone's footsteps to raise money. >> do you know how tough it is to go out and raise money? ask any professional, it's a tough, tough job. but you smile and do it for your mom, that's why you're raising the money you are. you'll break that goal before you're even 18. >> thank you. >> where do you go to school? >> st. martins. >> what grade? >> i'm in 8th grade. >> thank you so much for joining us. can we do it again? let's put up the swim fest information, on sunday at the arena club. then we go to, the crab feast on the 19th and eat out night at the tower on main street and race for the cure. how many do you have for race for the cure so far? >> on our team we have about 15 so far. >> well amanda, we'll see you in
9:16am
a week when you come back. race for the cure, coming up on sunday. little earlier this year on october 3rd. we're going to do it, right? great job, amanda. >> your mom is very proud of you. if you want more information on that we'll put it on our website. there's an old fashion way, match making, blind dates and online matches. coming up: get ready for gps dating. why just a phone, a profile and your location could find you the love of your life just around the corner.
9:17am
9:18am
9:19am
following your heart to true love. that's so last century. today, romance seekers are just turning on their phones. we hear a growing number of singles are logging off the internet dating sites and using a gps application to meet one another and then falling in love. >> reporter: when online dating made it save you in the 1990s, it spawned a hit hollywood movie, dozens of websites and a whole new way to meet and fall
9:20am
in love. but now say a growing number of singles, those once modern sites are so last century. there's a new way of dating in town. gps dating. gps, the technology responsible for the sound of this "in .1 miles turn left." is now responsible for the sound of this. [wedding theme song]. brian used a gps dating application on his cell phone when buying a cup of coffee in the time warner shopping center. i saw him on, and it really cut my attention. >> she was down two floors beneath me. she was like, c'mon down, come say hi. >> reporter: singles can now
9:21am
find out who else in their immediate vicinity is looking for a love match. if a profile is appealing, a would-be romeo or juliet simply has to send someone a text. if there's a mutual interest, they can meet within just minutes. >> reporter: the advantage of gps saving is it doesn't take as much time as internet dating. internet security experts warn the potential disadvantages are considerable. >> somebody knows your location, they just tap you on the shoulder and all of a sudden you're having a conversation with this person and you don't realize how they know about you. >> reporter: scout takes pains to make certain the exact street address from where a person is messaging cannot be determined. >> no one can ever figure out exactly where you are. you have to tell the person, let's meet on up. >> reporter: he encourages people to use common sense when
9:22am
using gps dating, like agreeing to meet in public locations and when in doubt, to meet dates with friends. to find out how effective gps dating is, we recruited four women to test the new technology. within minutes they found dozens of potential suitors in the general vicinity. >> he's already commenting on her name. >> on my username. >> reporter: while there was plenty of flirting, our ladies didn't find anyone they actually wanted to meet. >> when we spoke an hour ago, you were open minded wanting to try it out, are you still wanting to pursue it? >> yeah, i mean sure. >> reporter: two years after meeting on a gps-facilitated whim, they flew to paris and he proposed.
9:23am
>> i never thought it would happen like this. i never thought i'd find someone. >> so far the most popular cities for gps dating, new york, san francisco, but the trend is growing quickly nationwide. >> to each their own, i guess. if you talk to any single person, they'll tell you it's not easy. it's tough to meet someone, and when you do there, are so many questions. how do you meet somebody in the first place? how do you ask people out? who pays? our next guest is an author, match-maker and dating coach, joan allen. you've seen her all over. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> what did you think of gps dating? >> i like it, it's immediate. you can make a decision real fast like internet dating, you might have to make plans and it takes the process can take a long time. this is right then. go for it. >> now we could do a whole show on you, everybody says that dating is really, really tough. i'm sure you get all the same questions.
9:24am
once you meet somebody and first start, it's really a matter of doing things the right way if you want a second date or third date or who knows how many more from that. one of the big questions is, who pays? >> big question. i talk to a lot of single people. i interviewed 200 single people for my book celebrating single and i think you keep it simple. you meet at a starbucks or a coffee shop, order a cup of coffee and the man pays. if a man can't afford $1.75 at starbucks for the ladies coffee, he shouldn't be dating. i understand it's a tough economy right now, but that's just a question of manners. >> what if the woman approaches the man and says, can you go out for a cup of coffee, should the man still pay? >> i think so. what's to come? is the person kind? generous? does he have manners? it says a lot about the man.
9:25am
and i've spoken to a few single men who date a lot and they say "well, when i get there, she doesn't look like she did in her picture so i'm not going to pay." >> do you think, is there, a cup of coffee is a good idea, it's casual, not expensive, let's say there's a second date, at that point and it is a little bit more formal, you go to dinner, does it matter who pays from there? >> you know, it just depends. i have a problem with ladies who suggest going to the most expensive restaurant in town. that's not right. that's bad manners too. it should be a mutually-agreed upon place, it shouldn't be expensive, i think the guy should pick it up and once you establish that you're dating, like five, six dates later, the lady can make him dinner, she can offer to pay, she can get movie tickets or theater tickets so there's a balance somewhere.
9:26am
>> before we go, can you give us a dating do and a dating don't? >> ooh, dating do, keep it simple, meet in a safe place, um, a dating don't, uh, don't make the date the first initial date where you haven't met each other before. don't make it long, an hour, a half an hour even, this is just a meet and greet. is there chemistry there, go to the next step. >> all right, and maybe don't at first talk about controversial subjects. >> okay, well joan is the author of celebrating single. where can people get in touch with you? >> they can e-mail me. ljoan@aol.com. >> if you google her, you'll find all sorts of articles and information. you know, it's hard sometimes to see through what ends up being just another scam. we'll try to help you out with
9:27am
tips on what you should always look for to keep you from losing money. today is a big day in the mortgage industry. the president tries to help those under water. could there be another new home buying credit on the way? >> before we go to break, if you're trying to land a job in this tough economy, we're trying to get you back to work. each wednesday on good morning maryland at 9:00, we'll put three video resumes on the air. we'll call you to come in and tape a 20-second video pitch we put on the air and on our website. watch us wednesday and you'll learn more about it. some people say i'm obsessed with my chickens.
9:28am
9:29am
but i like to think i'm just going beyond the call of duty. cock-a-doodle-dooooo! i do 22 more inspections than the government requires. and my fresh, all-natural chickens are never given any hormones or steroids. ♪ they're fed a nutritious diet including corn, soybeans and marigolds. and no candy, gladys. [ clucks ] [ male announcer ] perdue. extra inspections. extraordinary chicken. what? they're more comfortable.
9:30am
let's get back to your two cents on today's hot topic. on our facebook fan page, we asked you, is the government doing enough to help people get back to work? here's what june wrote in: why not send the unemployed back to the jobs they lost and
9:31am
strengthen these jobs? if you'd like to share your two cents on today's hot topic, we'll share some comments throughout the rest of this morning's show. we've all fallen for deceptive ads that lure you in with low prices, big promises, but joce sterman has tips to help you see through the hype in this week's scam alert. from infomercials that claim you can earn thousands from home to service companies that advertise a low price, only to switch it up, we've all let deceptive ads suck us in. >> you have to take a breath, do not respond emotionally. >> reporter: false promises that sound too good to be true. >> that shouldn't be the primary reason you buy that item, because in the end, good chance you'll be disappointed. >> reporter: many promises for free trials often turn into
9:32am
subscriptions or offers that come with an up front fee. speaking of blind-sides, barnett says be weary of ad trick number two, the bait and switch where you see a low price advertised, but end up paying more. >> if this price is really low compared to all the others, that's a good indicator you may not get what you're actually expecting. >> reporter: to avoid the bait and switch, ask for an estimate in writing when the service provider walks in. if it's higher than the advertised price, send them packing. you can throw out many of the testimonials you see as well. they're deceptive ad trick number three. >> a tool better business bureau uses, when we find a testimonial, we cut and paste, put it into the internet and it's amazing, all the other products and websites that pop up using the same testimonial. >> reporter: don't buy the success stories unless you've heard them from someone you know and trust. that also goes for big brands,
9:33am
companies like mcdonalds and wal-mart often have their logos used even when they have no ties to what's being sold. >> some things you'll find going to their websites, people will actually post these scams and tell you out right "we're not part of it." >> and if you don't want to be on the losing end of a deceptive ad, do your homework and don't believe the hype. all right, carl del monte from freedmont mortgage is here. all right, a lot to talk about today. tuesday some big changes are coming. >> i feel like a broken record. it seems like every couple weeks i'm on here, more changes, more changes. that's the main product out. there what's happening now, tomorrow we talked about this last week, tomorrow goes into effect. new fha rules, they'll cap the loan amounts at 97.5% of the
9:34am
combined loan value. both mortgages. if you're trying to refinance a first and second mortgage, they have to be under the 97.5% or you'll be locked out of an fha loan. >> why is this change happening? >> that's a whole nother topic. maybe the two were tied in, but you have to ask yourself, if they're lowering the amount people can borrow, how will it help underwater homeowners? they want banks to write down the balance. they want the second mortgage company to take $30,000 and write it down to whatever, maybe $97,000 in this case. so what will happen, that's at the taxpayer expense. also what they're doing, they're not including fannie or freddie loans in there. they're sold on wall street in all these cdos, which are
9:35am
basically, tranches, different types of layers of risk. people at the most risky investments will get hurt on that deal too. we don't care about them. it's true. i don't really see, in a lot of commerce, we don't see this working too well, but it sounds nice. homeowners need help. right now the estimates about 20 million people under water. >> what about more tax credits? i know a lot of people say "i could use that help." >> the tax credit did spur some type of buying spree, but it was like a sugar high. it did encourage buying, but a lot of people say we're rewarding people who are going to buy anyway. it could happen after the credit was extended that it died. home-buying slowed down. i think it's a huge mistake for the government to leak this out right now. here's what's going to happen. people hear this, they say "i'm not going to buy then."
9:36am
now you're stifling everything going on right now. right now $23.5 billion has been spent on this tax credit. home prices are going up a little bit. 5.6%, but we're still, we're still down like 20% from last year. so, it's inching up incrementally, but once again, my description is this, the economy's a jet with two engines, housing and jobs and both engines are sputtering out. i don't know if artificial stimulus will work. we need to make it easier for people to get loans and get some help. >> we really have to fix the job engine ones to make the housing work. >> if you have a job now, you can consider yourself fortunate. what if i get laid off, can i afford it. if many people want to buy a home, same thing, those things are all intertwined. putting housing in there and make it a ripple effect.
9:37am
when you look at housing, realtors, appraisers, mortgage people, home depot, lowes, all these people. now we have a lot of lenders talking about more layoffs, which will hurt the economy more. it's ironic on labor day, we're talking about jobs, i hope things will get better and my personal opinion is if i was in congress right now, i wouldn't be taking it off, i'd be working on something. i think we have a lot of things to work down. >> well thank you for coming in. we always appreciate it. especially on labor day. if you have a question for carl, he's here every monday. e-mail your questions to morningshow@wmar.com. next week the state primaries are full of candidates, all hoping to change the way washington does its business. we'll hear from another of those candidates hoping to see the end of the house of representatives and represent you.
9:38am
a gorgeous labor day with lots of sunshine in the forecast for you. let me show you maryland's most powerful radar as of now. we have all five sweeps on. things looking magnificent, chesapeake, we're at 72. 72 degrees, high temps at 72. 56%. the winds right now, 14. east, southeast and gusts up to about 17 miles an hour. check out this beautiful picture here, oh yes, of the harbor. lots of sunshine in the forecast, that'll continue as we go throughout the day. temperature at 69 degrees.
9:39am
as a career prosecutor i made decisions on facts not politics. in washington, i'm trying to do the same. that's why i voted to crackdown on wall street and protect the bay.
9:40am
and why i voted against the $3 trillion budget, the big bank bailout, and against the health care bill. you see for me it's not about democrats or republicans it's about common sense and doing what's best for our families. maybe that's why i'm ranked one of the most independent members of congress. i'm frank kratovil and i approve this message.
9:41am
thanks for joining us this morning, time now for our featured events. we get e-mails from people and pass it along. this is exciting: coming up, big announcement tomorrow: 9:00, baltimore's mayor, stephanie rawlings-blake, the new health commissioner and baltimore ravens running back ray rice will announce the nation's first ever healthy city days. get involved in making healthy lifestyle choices, providing dozens of free screenings, educational programs easily accessible like locations throughout baltimore. they'll announce this whole thing tomorrow at the cici jackson recreation center. did you know there's real housewives of bel air.
9:42am
these driven and ambitious women balance easy home lives demanding careers. the real housewives of bel air. >> they sound nothing like those bravo women. if you want more information, you can always e-mail us. our personal e-mail addresses are right there. you can send it to morningshow@wmar.com. this time next week, we'll be talking seriously about voting in our state primary. >> we're going to hear from another candidate vying for the third congressional seat in our state. >> we'll talk about dating rules. what's this online dating rank. today to our top five cities for online dating is coming up next.
9:43am
9:44am
9:45am
on our facebook fan page: we ask you if the government is doing enough to get you back to work. >> one viewer says no. she feels helpless. go to our facebook fan page and
9:46am
leave a comment. it's about jobs and the economy. now to our ongoing democracy 2010 coverage, next week we'll go to the polls to vote for our number of candidates running for seats in our area. we introduce you to some of those running for office. today, kelly swoope sits down with a number of candidates for sheriff. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> tell me the single most important issue right now? >> the obvious answer will be crime. there are acts out there so horrific if you fall victim to them, you'll be changed forever as a person. i think that's why this race and law enforcement is so important. the robberies, the home invasions, the shootings, the stabbings, the gangs that we deal with, i think that impacts us more on a regular basis and the majority of those crimes
9:47am
have won thing in common. that's drugs. >> what would you do in office yesterday that affects the greatest amount of change and true quality of life of your constituents? >> i've been proactive in my career and intend to stay proactive. the first is to target the street level drug dealers. these are the guys out there in these neighborhoods, majority of the time. they're the eyes and ears of the criminal world. we start targeting those guys, get them locked up and get things associated with the drugs off the streets. the guns, the drugs, the um, the moneys, make sure we get everything that's make them profitable out of the way. and more importantly, find out what they know. it's one thing to know what the police know and that makes us effective, but knowing what the bad guys know makes us even more effective. the other side is to be proactive in enforcement way. i want to develop a program with the police and the agencies in
9:48am
the county, the state police, havre de grace, aberdeen and bel air, the local jurisdictions, couple us with the state's attorneys office and the board of education. and i would like to develop a program to target the parents. specifically the parents of the third, fourth, fifth and sixth-graders. these are the kids that have the, the biggest um, impact, could have the biggest impact on these um, age kids. these are the kids that fall victim to predators, whether the deviant predators or the drug dealers or being recruited in the gangs. this is where they're most um, can go from the good to the bad and i think that if we keep everything proactive and get the parents on board, so they understand you know, this is something as simple as the internet. these are the sites your kids are looking at. this is how things are transmitted, this is how easy it is to fall victim, the last thing we want is kids to be victimized by bull -- bullies or
9:49am
become the bully. maybe, just maybe the next generation of police and parents and teachers wi4lb have a little bit better world to live in. >> i'm a three-year veteran of the u.s. army, i'm a graduate of the johns hopkins help, the police executive leadership program. i have my bachelors and masters degrees from the johns hopkins university. i've been with the sheriffs office for 22 years now, i've worked criminal investigations, patrol, internal affairs, member of the honor guard, instructor at the academy, but more importantly, i worked a great number of years um, investigating drug law violations. specifically a worked in an undercover capacity. i purchased drugs from hundreds of different people undercover. i've written dozens and dozens
9:50am
